This local country park has it all covered…

If you want history, an abundance of nature, and miles of footpaths to explore, then you should definitely visit this local country park…

Bonc Yr Hafod Country Park lies on the site of Hafod Colliery, and interestingly the hill is made out of dug-up mining waste from the coal shafts and tunnels deep underground.

A BAD DEAL FROM WELSH GOVERNMENT MEANS WE’RE FORCED TO MAKE MORE CUTS. HAVE YOUR SAY…

Hafod is rich in wildlife and is part of the Johnstown Special Area of Conservation. We were lucky enough to spot a buzzard in full flight!

There’s miles of footpaths to explore, including two way-marked trails (red and yellow).

We completed the red trail which takes you to the summit – which has a large sundial miner sculpture – and offers panoramic views across the Welsh border.

Here’s a short video from our visit…

If you liked this video, stay tuned as we’ll be re-visiting Hafod in the coming weeks to complete the yellow trail (woodlands and ponds)…

We have to make even more cuts…and ask taxpayers for more money. But before we do anything, we want to know what you think.

I WANT MY SAY! NO…I DON’T WANT A SAY
